Mental health of young people during the COVID-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken its toll on the mental health and wellbeing of the population globally. Even two years after the COVID-19 Pandemic breakout, the impact on the mental health of populations globally, particularly children and young people, is evident and dramatic. There is limited evidence on COVID-19 and its impact on mental health of the Georgian population, especially young people. This document looks at the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health of young people in low- and middle-income countries. We hope that compiling evidence on this topic will aid  Georgian stakeholders in advocacy targeting the prioritization of child and adolescent mental health as well as the development of accessible services that are tailored to the needs of the given population.

The document has been prepared by CIF in the frame of the Strategic Policy Fellowship Program authored by the fellows (Ani Khachidze, Rati Leluashvili, Tamar Leonidze, Rusudan Meskhi, and Mariam Nadiradze) and Alisa Tsuladze. The program is launched as part of the K2P Mentorship Program for Building Institutional Capacity for HPSR and Delivery Science. The project is funded by The Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research.
